Wow sounds like a great week (besides the testing Friday!) and that'll be awesome to have a huge van to fit everyone!

Re: Chat Thread ~ Jan 27th - Feb 2nd

Wow! Everyone seems to be so productive. DH went to work on our weekend house so we will have a finished bedroom to sleep in at some point (we rent our house from the school district during the week, and live in our house on the weekends). He built a new closet and is putting sheetrock over the ugly cinderblock walls. We are going to paint it a purplish color because eventually it will be our girls' room. But for now, all 4 (soon to be 5) of us share it. We have two mattresses from our pop up camper spread out on the floor, so there's plenty of sleeping room for everyone (though somehow I always get sandwiched between Delia and Aven.

We never used a changing table either. We've always used the floor with a waterproof pad under baby.

I'm being totally nosy, but huh? I've never heard of that before. Is it too nosy to ask you to explain this renting from school district thing? I'm just so curious now...

You would understand if you saw where we live. It's like the moon out here. We work in a tiny town of about 100 people...in the middle of nowhere. We have no stores in town, no gas station, nothing other than a bar, mine, library, and post office. The closest town for groceries is over 50 miles away, and it's all desert between here and there. It is an old mining town, and there are a lot of old run down houses here. If the school district didn't have a house for the teacher to live in, they would never get a teacher to work here. The district owns two houses in our town...ours and our neighbor's, who is the maintenance person for the district. So, we rent from the district.

We have a 4 day school week (M-Th), and when we first moved here we would always go into another town 100 miles away to go rock climbing and get our groceries there. We would go there two times on the weekends, so we were spending a lot of time on the road. We decided to keep an eye out for a house in that town so we could live there on the weekends, and actually own a house (it would make no sense to buy in the town we work in). We go over there on Thursday nights and stay until Sunday evenings, and we go over there on some of our breaks. It's an older house that needs a lot of updating, but the price was right, it's in a beautiful location, and it allows my girls to participate in some extra curricular activities.


If this was a private forum, I would totally post the link to an article that was written about our county/town/school a few years ago. But it has our names in it and other info I don't want to share on a public board.

Due to sleet the kids and I both got 2 hour late start today! So hooray for a short work day! DS also slept from 7pm-530am! We've been having tons of sleep issues with him so it feels like a miracle!

Re: Chat Thread ~ Jan 27th - Feb 2nd

sounds similar to when I worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service - the refuges were sometimes way out in the boonies, so they always had houses on them for the employees to rent.

but that sounds like a really lovely town. I've lived in small, but not that small. I didn't like small towns so much when I was single, but now that I'm married, I don't think I'd mind so much of course if there were extracurriculars within a fairly short drive.. I'm always worried about being in a place that has a good music program. Both DH and I were big band nerds and I don't know if our kids will follow our footsteps, but we'd like it to be available.

Watching DD start her nap in the big bed right now on the video monitor. Naps are always a harder transition than bedtime for her. Last night she lost her bear twice and needed help and then one time I think she just wanted assurance that we were all still in the same house. lol. Makes me really glad that we've got her moved over and adjusting now with plenty of time before the baby comes.

everything is bittersweet for parents though.. baby girl in such a big girl bed.

went through the newborn and 0-3 month clothes yesterday and yay! we have enough! So, that's nice. I guess I kept more of my favorites than I thought Just thinking about my little girl in those sleepers got me all sad about how fast it's been. Several of those outfits, I would have just guessed were older, but no.. she wore them before DH deployed, so must have been in the first 8 weeks. Teeny tiny clothes........

had my ultrasound today and I don't really know anything... he wasn't very forthcoming, said 'I can't make judgements, I'm not the doctor'. Which is professional and good and all.. BUT.. baby was head down - yay! which I know that there's still plenty of time to flip and flop, but since one of my irrational fears was that the short end of the cord was holding the baby breech, it makes me happy to know that's not true. And the 'money shot' as he called it, was that the baby is not cord wrapped around the neck like it was at 20 weeks, so all seems to be going smoothly towards the vbac. hopefully at my appt on Thursday, I'll find out when I get my referral to the hospital where I'll be giving birth.

he did say something about my uterus being anterior still? I guess I expected it to be extended enough at this point where it wouldn't be tilted.. but what do I know.... well, wikipedia says it usually corrects at about 12 weeks preggo.. will have to ask the doctor about that. I sorta think he meant to say 'anterior fundal placenta', but he definitely said uterus. which would have made more sense if he said placenta.

anyways.. that's all I've got it snowed like crazy this morning and has all melted. Yesterday was the first day it had melted off in over a month, so was a little disappointed to see the ground all white again and am happy to see the grass yet again.

Good news on baby being head down! As for the other things--I do not know much about that stuff by I try not to google to much--or DH does not let me google anymore LOL!

Still battling, by far, the worst cold I have ever had! It is crazy! I can not wait until it is over and I can just wnjoy being pregnant again and the beautiful weather.

We were suppose to look at houses on Sat in an area that we may move to but we had to cancel bc every one but dh is sick. DS1 was so upset bc he loves house hunters and wanted to search for a new home. Dh thinks he can will the sickies away. More power to him he is still not sick.

Other than that baby has positioned herself nicely on my bladder.
